Sprit Night

Wear your school colors and enjoy an evening of fun during SPIRIT NIGHT at Burden Museum & Gardens, 440 acres in the heart of Baton Rouge dedicated to research, recreation, landscapes and Louisiana History. 

Burden Museum & Gardens includes the LSU Rural Life Museum, the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens and Windrush Gardens.

With Burden’s specialty collection of gardens, woodlands, wetlands, arboreta and university research facility, there is more to the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens than just green spaces. The facility plays an important role in the LSU AgCenter extension and research programs, which support the state’s nursery, landscape, and fruit and vegetable industries; wetlands and coastal restoration; and forestry industry.

Named one of the “Top 10 Outdoor Museums in the World” by the British Museum, the LSU Rural Life Museum transports you back to 19th century Louisiana. The museum offers an immense collection of artifacts from farms, plantations and households. The open-air museum has a five-star rating from AAA and features more than 30 unique, historic buildings.

Majestic live oaks and ancient crape myrtles create a shady canopy over azaleas and camellias in the Windrush Gardens, evoking a sense of tranquility and peace. The winding paths are ideal for strolling and enjoying the 25 acres of landscaped spaces.

Along with enjoying the beautiful scenery and history of Spirit Night’s location, guests will enjoy some of our famous southern cuisine, such as crawfish, jambalaya, and fried fish, while sipping local produced beverages and listening to live music from one of our favorite bands. 

Don’t miss what is sure to be a fun event showcasing true, Louisiana food, beverages and entertainment!
